"I knew that one day I would write this book," says Rabbi Kushner. "I would write it out of my own need to put into words some of the most important things I have come to believe and know. And I would write it to help other people who might one day find themselves in a similar predicament. I am fundamentally a religious man who has been hurt by life, and I wanted to write a book that could be given to the person who has been hurt by life, and who knows in his heart that if there is justice in the world, he deserved better...If you are such a person, if you want to believe in God's goodness and fairness but find it hard because of the things that have happened to you and to people you care about, and if this audio helps you do that, then I will have succeeded in distilling some blessing out of Aaron's pain and tears."

I was very moved by this book. It gave me such comfort to know that I am not alone. The Rabbi gives his views on strength which has given me much more. In these troubling times, it is good to know that such a book exists.
